A gingersnap crust and ground ginger in the filling give this festive pumpkin cheesecake its rich ginger flavor.
2 cups gingersnap cookie crumbs, about 40 cookies
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 packages (16 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
1 tablespoon flour
2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Cinnamon, Ground Saigon
1/2 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Ginger, Ground
1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Cloves, Ground
1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Nutmeg, Ground
Preheat oven to 350°F. For the Crust, mix all ingredients in medium bowl. Press evenly into bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.
For the Filling, beat cream cheese and brown sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed after each addition just until blended. Add pumpkin, flour, vanilla and spices; beat until smooth. Pour into crust.
Bake 50 minutes or until top is lightly browned and center is almost set. Turn off oven; let cheesecake stand in oven 1 hour. Remove from oven. Run small knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cheesecake. Cool in pan on wire rack.
Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Serve with Vanilla Whipped Cream, if desired. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
Vanilla Whipped Cream: Beat 1 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract in medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.

This was easy to make and no water bath required
Sounds WONDERFUL. I have a plain cheesecake recipe I adore, but no pumpkin "pie" alternatives I can eat anymore. May have just found one.
Plan to adapt Gluten Free - Pamelas gluten-free ginger snaps are amazing, and I will try upping eggs to avoid flour (otherwise will use Pamelas).
Already use McCormick spices, and both cinnamon and ginger carry health benefits so I add where I can.
Sounds awesome !
Sounds Yummy !
